Join With Richmond Residents To Support Reproductive Rights In VA

by | Oct 20, 2015 | POLITICS

Recently RVA readers made their objections known to an article we posted on our website. We regret the offense we caused by publishing it, and we’ve since removed the article from our website, but we didn’t want to stop there. In the spirit of making things right, and of turning a negative into a positive, we wanted to make clear our support for women’s equality and reproductive rights by joining with a local campaign to collect 500 donations to Planned Parenthood from Richmond area residents.

Recently RVA readers made their objections known to an article we posted on our website. We regret the offense we caused by publishing it, and we’ve since removed the article from our website, but we didn’t want to stop there. In the spirit of making things right, and of turning a negative into a positive, we wanted to make clear our support for women’s equality and reproductive rights by joining with a local campaign to collect 500 donations to Planned Parenthood from Richmond area residents. These donations take on an added importance in light of the fact that the Virginia Board Of Health will hold a public hearing this Friday, January 27th, in which they will consider adding permanent restrictions to the ability of Planned Parenthood and other groups like it to counsel women about their reproductive choices, and cause many women’s health centers in the state of Virginia to be shut down entirely.

Getting 500 donations to Planned Parenthood from Richmond area residents by Friday will help send a message to the state government about what sort of choices we’d like to have available in our state. And if you can, please attend the public hearing, so that you can make your support for women’s reproductive rights in the state of Virginia known. That hearing is at 10 AM on Friday January 27.

The original 500 Richmonders for Reproductive Rights online event is here.
